A decision is made



A lovely thought came to me last night regarding Mum's ashes tub - so this morning I felt strong enough to rinse out the remaining ashes and water my apple tree I got for my birthday last year. Although I believe that the body is just a shell and her spirit is roaming free I just couldn't bring myself to part with it. This way there is a tiny part of her in my garden (she loved gardening) and the tub is in the recycling box ;-). I feel lighter today.

That must have been a hard choice to make Shell, but I think it sounds like a lovely place for her ashes to be. There is so much life in the soil, much better than being in a box and you'll remember her every time you see that tree.

What a nice Solstice story Shell, and a very appropriate date - when the light lingers all night. Hugs and peaceful vibrations to you. xxx
